Eureka Eurostars 3: call 1 is open for applications. Through this competition, UK registered SMEs can apply for a share of £2.5 million to fund collaborative R&D projects with organisations from participating Eureka Eurostars member countries.

What’s new?
  • There are fewer eligibility criteria than there were in the previous programme. Now, applicants must meet seven criteria:
      1. The project lead is an innovative SME from a Eurostars country.
      2. Your consortium includes at least two independent entities.
      3. Your consortium includes entities from at least two Eurostars countries
      4. The budget of the SME(s) from a Eurostars country, excluding subcontracting, is 50% or more of the total project cost.
      5. No single participant or country is responsible for more than 70% of the project budget.
      6. The project duration is 36 months or less.
      7. The project has an exclusively civilian purpose.
  • The new application consists of fourteen questions, two of which did not appear in the old application. There are five sections: Project Details, Application, Your Organisation, Declarations, Work Packages.
  • Some good news for UK applicants – the new application uses the same format as Innovate UK’s online applications!
  • You can no longer edit an application after you have submitted it.
  • The SME Declaration and Commitment and Signature forms must be signed and uploaded prior to submission.
  • Projects should fall between TRLs 4 and 6/7.
